In today’s day and age, when people need information they head straight to their preferred search engine, type in a few key words and get the exact information they need. Gone are the days of looking through business book directories and talking to one another for information we need (well, we’re heading that way!). For example, if you’re looking to purchase a new product, you will most likely research this product online by reading product information straight from the supplier or reading reviews and articles. It’s very unlikely that you will look through physical written articles such as brochures. So from this example, you can see that ensuring your website is submitted to, and has a good presence on the biggest search engines, is very important to the success of your business or any kind of website you’re operating. This way, you make sure your website is widely accessible to the audience you are trying to target.
